It's called a night market, but in real time life its maybe more what you would call an evening market.
From 5 pm to 10 pm.
That means that in Thailand the market will always be moonlighted by the end of the evening. Sun goes down at 6 or 7 pm and at 9 pm the stars are out and shining in symphony with the Moon!
So a Night Market it is !
